I CERTAINLY feel that Ralph Prothero (Letters, August 11) should take off his rose-tinted glasses and have a good look around at the world (including the UK) and digest what is happening all around us today.

NOW that Southampton has been listed as a city for 50 years, mainly on the fact of expansiveness, the election wards need breaking into four, i.e. north, south, east and west, giving two more Members of Parliament to look after matters.

In view of the oft repeated words of Alec Salmond that he intends to keep the pound is he referring to the British pound, to which all the parties at Westminster have categorically refused to accept, or, is he relying on the Scottish pound as his pound?
